3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a large sized head of finely sized tan colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a very softly carbonated transparent copper brown colored body and a spiderweb lacing. The mild aroma was mild malt and mild hop. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The strong flavor contained notes of strong delicious caramel hops and malt. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.

On tap at SPSBF. Pours a clear golden orange with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of grassy hops with a bit of citrus and an earthy bread backing. Flavor is a bit thin with some light grassy hops with a light grain backing.

Sampled at St. Paul Summer Beer Fest. Hazy orange pour. Grassy hops with some caramel malt. Decent IPA, but not a standout.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a darker golden with a white head. Aroma is more malty, but does have some fruity elements. Some mango, pine, and raisin. Taste contains more of the same, but is mixed with a very malty character. While this combination isnít all that bad, I canít say that it completely agrees with me. There isnít really much of a hoppy kick that is common with IPAs. Piney aftertaste mixed with that unusual malt flavor and mango. Better IPAs can be easily found.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Malty base, leading to a generally hoppy finish. A bit buttery, some grass and citrus zest. Not a standout.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Single bottle purchased from a mom & pop store in Drumheller, Alberta on 06/01/2012. Colour: Light brown with minimal white head. Nose: Light drift of fresh coffee as I brought the glass to my nose. Big whiff generates huge caramel with suffocated roasted malt. Taste: High sweet, medium bitter, medium sour. There is roasted malt and hop presence enough to bring out bitterness, but the sugar is so dominant that I could not even finish the bottle. The more I drink Minhas products, the more I personally believe the Minhas brothers care only about getting their products in every genre of beer, making what money they can from it, and completely neglecting truly making quality crafts.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 ounce bottle, pours an amber color, aromas of all malt. Very little hop aromatics, really have to try to get a light citrus and light pine resin aromas. Flavors is all malt, not much hops or bitterness, did these guys call it the right name? That aside, it was an ok beer, but not true to a regular IPA style.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bottle, shared by dwm1034. Pours a deep amber color with a white head and some lacing. Aroma is light, a little hoppy, pine. Medium on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, bready, a little bitter, pine hops. Pretty underwhelming.

Shared bottle with sherm1016....not much there. Mild to bland nose and taste...some minor hoppy flavor but have had soooooooo many better. Best part is the label...
